Bedtime, spent most of the day in front of Zoom. Tomorrow, no zoom, Friday half day

A change in what camera I use, some stats from 2017-2021

I got this in my email:

“Imagine the Pandemic without Computer Science

Muffy Calder, Jack Parkinson and I would be delighted if you pass these on, by any means. It’s not about us but about Computer Science and telling the world about contributions that are sometimes overlooked.”

Hmmm, today I thought “I don’t want to go to work today, I just want to stay at home” … well, I’m working from home so that wouldn’t be much of change 🤦🏻‍♂️

Soon I will be able to start with my morning walks again. The sun is now up at 7:30 (2h earlier than two months ago) and I really like to walk a couple of hours before work. And yes, the sun is up 2h more in the afternoon so 4 more hours of light compared to two months ago

I’m currently listening to Pink Floyd … something I have done in 25-30 years and it’s sooooo different from what I hear being played today (and no, I’m not very much into music)

Apparently “blogger” means that you get paid for the stuff you publish. So, is there a name for people who write/publish stuff online and don’t get paid?

Time for “surgery”

Can I borrow your collective wisdom: what alternatives are there to Evernote? Requirements: being able to save different kinds of documents - mostly PDFs but there might be other types. macOS, iOS clients, being able to share a folder with others, sync. Easy to use

I love how english speaking people pronounce “urkund” 😋

An unexpected reply … yep, I’m an image nerd

It finally happened, I’ve ordered a sensor cleaning kit!! When I’ve noticed that the sensor have been dirty I have just handed in the camera for a general cleaning (especially when it’s done for free during a local photo show). Yesterday, I noticed some horrible dust on my oldest, cheapest m43 camera and it’s really too old for me to send it somewhere. And it’s the perfect camera to learn on, if something bad happens I will be ☹️ but not 😭

Collection IV - some kind of review

About 1.5 year ago I had this idea of making an attempt for a second degree black belt but it looks like it’s not going to happen. Not only is it that I’m getting too old, fat, and stiff … there is also no chance of training. I haven’t trained for about 15 months or so

Tomorrow I’m going for a change, I wonder if there will be a noticeable difference

I deserve this

Wow … “EU citizens offered financial incentives to leave UK

This is just a short test to see how Ulysses handles images when posting to


It will be interesting to see how it looks.

Well, this year has so far been full of change. New position at work => new stuff to learn, new course to teach => relearn and update myself on stuff that have happened the last 10-15 years.

I just realized that “Smoke on the water” is 50 years old 😳👴🏻

I’m happy to announce that we got some snow this year also, I had my doubts in December. Kitchen window

Sigh, I haven’t been able to take a real walk for several days now. The reason is simply that I’m trying to learn all the new stuff that comes with the new position and it takes time. A bit frustrating.

Using an electronic device for reading, advice please.

Because of my eyes I find it easiest to read on a screen. Typically I read PDFs/ebooks/etc and quite often I annotate PDFs (ie comment on student reports). I’ve been using my 11” iPad for this and the screen is nice, software alternatives are OK, etc … but it’s a bit heavy. A couple of years ago I tried a Kindle (I’ve forgotten which model) but I disliked the screen (greenish, low resolution, etc), the slow software, etc, but the weight was really nice.

Anyway, I’m considering getting some dedicated reading device but I don’t really know what alternatives I have. The obvious to me is the iPad mini but are there other devices I should look at? Note that the ability to annotate a PDF and being able to send the PDF back to the student is a really important feature.


And now from the new program

First from the regular program
